him several more times in the chest. as officer faulkner lay dying in the streets defensely, abu-jamal shot him in the face, killing him. at the hornghts abu-jamal brag -- at the hospital, abu-jamal bragged that he had shot officer faulkner and expressed his hope that he would die. at trial, he was remorseless. he interrupted the proceedings and insulted the judge and even smirked at officer faulkner's widow when the bloodstained shirt was held up in court as evidence. four eyewitnesses saw abu-jamal gun down officer faulkner, four eyewitnesses. three more witnesses at the hospital heard him confess to the crime. ballistics evidence approved that officer faulkner had been shot with a handgun registered to abu-jamal, which was found at the scene of the murder along with the shell casings. based on this overwhelming evidence, abu-jamal was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. what followed was a 30-year effort by the far left to glorify abu-jamal and to exonerate him. this effort was taken up by law professors, left-wing activistes, and in 2009 by the organization which the no
they said that this is not app invasion, it's a protective defensive measure, and on land and at sea in the harbour, what they have down is surround places. that is not to say that they want to go in and have a fight. it's to stop what they would see as fascist elements from kiev or troops here controlled by fascist elements from kiev attacking the pro-russian majority civilian population. whether you believe it, because we have seen no sign of fascist elements here at all, and no sign of the ukrainian soldiers wanting to engage in a fight as evidence of the situation at the sevastopol airport. certainly the russians want to be seen here as nonaggressive. given that they have been approached by a group of ukrainians without arms, there's no way in the world they would have wanted to be seen to be firing on unarmed ukrainian soldiers. that would be disastrous for them. >> laurence lee reporting there from crimea. >> the united states and the european union are both considering sanctions against russia. what are they likely to comprise, and how much bite will they have. one of the russ
hagel was nominated to be wecht ry of defense. some of the comments about our allies in the middle east it stared the living die lights out of me. my fears were not understanded. hagel proudly announced his proposals to further execute the readiness of our nation by food productions and cults to military families k housing, too cam bylet crime. we have warned of putting our gored dawn. for to harry truman to who dangerous. in this readiness world it the bound fags of our freedom. the best military lines from mccar tour to omar brad de to david petraeus warned us to lull into thinking it would be safer and careful. frankly i don't give a rat's rear if pop nations like north korea bully nations like iran like us, matters not at all to me. i want them to know if they raise their hand against us in the next insurance dant. we fool ourselves into thinking we should protect ourselves on the street and asking for military volunteers. i am back from 11 vehicle three years of military tfr. every 18-year-old gets two years of mandatory church. after that they dance 30 yeerps. they have to be read
that president obama is getting what we talked about yesterday, a long term goal was to shrink down our defense and expand the welfare state. here's my question. what do you think the american people care about most? the military or the welfare state? >> i think there's competing priorities, and that american people elect leaders to represent them and this isn't necessarily what america would want. of course, it's not easy to make cuts in any regard, and in fact, they did some military cuts to pension growth in the future, just in december, two months later, the congress restored the cuts. it's very difficult to do any sort of cutting. i do think that jay of national review wrote a great piece today about president obama's goal to shrink the military overall. and that he wanted a republican secretary of defense to oversee that draw down as cover for his upcoming budget, which does definitely expand not just the welfare state, but spending on lots of different things, domestic programs. the priority, i'm always for more defense. i understand there could be cuts here and there, waste fraud, and s
: you are reading the same headlines we are out of the russian defense ministry and from russian sources, first saying they would potentially be some assault on ukrainian forces who were holding out, albeit peacefully at the moment on the crimean peninsula. then we understand no such ultimatum has been issued. really, events down in the crimea which is in the southern part of this huge european country, let's not forget it's the second largest country by land mass in europe, with a 2300 kilometer border with russia. events are very fluid and really, no clear picture coming out. at the moment, we do know this government here in ukraine which is pro-western, is very defiant even though they are saying they are still looking for very diplomatic messages. that's despite the foreign minister of russia today being pretty aggressive, telling western powers not to back this government in ukraine. i spoke to the prime minister yatsenyuk today. i asked what's his message to lavrov and the russians. >> my message is that we will find a political and diplomatic solution despite the fact that russian
. >>> how much to cut from our defense budget. i'll talk to william cohen. plus confessions of a middle class cab driver. he would be back on the road to prosperity if he could just find the on ramp. i'm ali velshi. a and this is "real money." >> this is real money. you are the most important part of the show. join our life conversation for the next half hour on twitter at aj real money, at facebook. d-plus. that's your grade, america. i'm talking about our roads, railways, communications and more. collectively infrastructure in america gets nothing better than a d-plus grade on a report card put out by the american society of civil engineers. not only are we not doing enough to modernize our public infrastructure, we're barely maintaining what we have running right now. once upon time the american infrastructure was the envy of the world. now we're falling behind the rest of the world. eventually vice president biden slammed laguardia airport as being, quote, too third world after seeing the sleek airport in hong kong. nobody told the vice president that we don't say third world any mo
was really interesting, after those charges were read out, the defense attorney erupting oscar pistorius laid out, if you will, some of the points of the defense. oscar pistorius signed an affidavit at his bail hearing said that he had heard a disturbance in the bathroom of his house just after he had been to retrieve some fans from the balcony of that apartment of that house, and that's when he grabbed the pistol from underneath his bed, went into the bathroom, shot those shots through the bathroom door. even the magistrate at the time at the bail hearing had said, how could oscar pistorius not have known that his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, wasn't in the bed? well, listening to his defense attorney now, we're beginning to get some semblance of details added on. his defense attorney said as oscar, or just before oscar pistorius went to get those fans from his balcony, he had talked to reeva steenkamp in bed. the indication there laying the groundwork that he believed she was in bed because he had just talked to her. he said it was pitch dark and that's why he didn't know. so, we're beginnin
. strengthen nato's defense posture and impose costs on the putin government. broadly these are objectives most americans want to achieve right now but this particular circumstance i believe presents president obama with a fairly stark choice. ad-libbing was the term kim used. i would describe it as muddling through. he can either seek to mutt dell through this crisis or use it to articulate a broader vision of the role the united states should be playing and what we should be achieving through global leadership at this time. this is important because the russian invasion ever the crimean peninsula, is in my view symptommic of a role in which we see growing pressure against our allies, security partners, our friend in many areas and many regions simultaneously. would compare this moment perhaps to, once again kim mentioned the example of president carter facing the soviet invasion of afghanistan. would compare it both to perhaps president truman in 1947 looking at turkey straits crisis which was a very specific circumstance to which there were specific measures taken in terms of u.s. military a
were in high, high -- >> more likely, they had the defense ministry. >> and the army, too. and i thought in the closing ceremonies, there was even a flash of the kind of russian wit that i love. to see them making fun of themselves with the fifth ring not opening. >> rose: oh, yeah. >> i thought that was a kind of show biz moment of irony that was nice. but them the real world reasserts itself. >> rose: and they told a story. there was a narrative in the opening ceremony. >> they did. and i think that was part of my job sitting in between matt lauer and meredith viera to-- i guess, you know, some people thought i was debbie downer-- "here comes the marching persians of 1937." but more seriously, there was an attempt -- >> here comes a guy who has actually lived in russia. >> but there was an attempt, however much a cirque du soleil kind of macy's thanksgiving day parade terms, to show the best face forward, even historically. russian history is-- has been for centuries a legacy of-- in many ways of rivers of blood and oppression and-- but part of putin's cashatism and his buildin
. you were a former assistant of defense in the reagan administration. what's going on in russia right now? >> they have decided to take what it couldn't get with a carrot it's going to take with a stick. russia tried to buy ukraine, offered them a big loan, cheap gas. they said no thank you very much so russia is going to take what it wants which is crimea. >> what's at stake for us? >> for the last 40 years we have been promoting democracy. these people want what we want but they can't have it. russia wants it back. they want greater russia back. as much as president obama said it's a cold war game, it's russia at every step check mating the united states and supplanting us in that part of the world. >> when you see transport vehicles, aircraft landing in your city, it doesn't feel like a game. is there anything that would pull our american military into what's going on between russia and ukraine? >> we don't have a military option there. >> when the president threatens, what is he talking about? >> you'll ask to ask him. >> i mentioned that you were with the reagan administration an
reservists, even as it admits the country can't match russia's firepower. ukraine's defense minister says russian soldiers converged on three military bases in crimea demanding ukrainian troops surrender and give up their weapons. the ukrainian soldiers did not and there has been no fighting between them. >>> president obama and russian president vladimir putin spoke over the phone for 90 minutes saturday. the u.s. says russia is breaking international law. russia says it's protecting its military personnel and citizens in crimea. in response to all of this, the united states, great britain and france are suspending their participation in preparation talks for the g-8 summit being held in russia in june. we're going to get a lot of perspectives on this, but we want to go first to ukraine's ambassador to the u.n. we'll also speak later to president obama he's former national security advisor and two top u.s. senators. >>> mr. ambassador, first of all, thank you so much for joining us. i want to ask you in response to a couple of breaking developments now. the prime minister now in ukraine
chuck hagel was nominated to be secretary of defense, i strongly objected based on his record as a senator, and some of his comments about our allies in the middle east that absolutely scared the living daylights out of me. my fears, they were not unfounded. as this week hagel proudly announced his proposal to further gut the military readiness of our nation by drastic troop reductions and cuts to our military families with housing, food, and family health care. for the past 100 years, presidents and our nation's top warriors have warned of putting our guard down. both democrat and republican presidents, from calvin coolidge to franklin roosevelt, to harry truman, to eisenhower, to reagan, reminded us that in a dangerous world, readiness to fight is the foundation of our freedom. the best military minds in our nation's history, from mcarthur to omar bradley to david petraeus, warned of lulling ourselves into the stupid stupor of thinking the world would be safer and more peaceful if we just holsterred our guns and sheathed our swords. it's folly to think such nonsense. the bes
and nothing happened. so the russian defense ministry said it didn't issue such an ultimatum, but the ukrainian defense forces said that they definitely received it. and journalists did report witnessing that ultimatum being handed to them. so, it's not quite clear who exactly is threatening whom, but the situation, you know, remains such that everyone is waiting for russia to play its hand and attack or not attack. >> what -- people in the area want or thinks, not the military but the people. >> i think ethnic russian community in crimea, which is the majority of the population on the peninsula, they are content to have the russian troops here protecting them from the new government that came to power in last month's revolution. however, they do not want any blood to be spilled. i think the minute that russia attacks any of the bases or kills any ukrainian servicemen, they will lose the support of the local population definitely. >> simon, if you will stand by, we will get back to you little later in the hour. thank you, simon. >> thank you. >> what should the united states

defense minister will run in the upcoming presidential elections. joining me now is david kirkpatrick, the cairo bureau chief of the new york times. he wrote in investigative report on the benghazi attacks. i am pleased to have david kirkpatrick back at this table. welcome. >> it is good to be here. >> wherever it is now, you are watching it on old. there is change in the region. >> i am probably the luckiest journalist in america. i was in the right place at the right time. i was in tunisia on the eve of their revolution. then i was in the via four months. it has been breathtaking. >> where's egypt today? >> it is very hard to know. mentioned, the field marshal is likely to become the next president. he hosted the first democratically elected president. he was embraced as a hero by a lot of the public. they are growing impatient with si government. he was promising stability. right now, i think that promise looks very remote. of the factors that contributed to the original uprising are economic stagnation, a lack of opportunity, an overwhelming youthful population. something like 70%
budget with defense cuts amid mounting national security challenges. >> i must say your timing is exquisite. >> now, beyond crimea, mccain mentioned stalled iranian negotiations, conflict in syria, and the chinese getting more aggressive in the south china sea just as china announces it's increasing its own military spending sharply. >> ed henry live on the north lawn, thank you. >>> yeah crane's new prime minister said crimea must remain part of his country. john kerry is trying to cajole the russians to play nice, but he appears to have little leverage. james rosen is traveling with secretary kerry in paris tonight. >> joined by aides inside the ambassador's residence in paris, john kerry squared off once more against russia's long time foreign minister, sergey lavrov, one of the least charitable diplomats who had already telegraphed how little the kremlin will concede by the an exation of crimea in southeastern ukraine, home to the warm water fleet. >> some special alert measures have been adopted to control the fleet because as our president said we're not going to allow an
in the united states coming to the defense of gay and lesbian citizens. to finally be written in to full citizenship in this country. lgbt people. is, you know, literally not something i thought i would see in my lifetime. really. i'm gratifiedfy it and i am thrilled that you've seen attorney generals in virginia, now new mexico, refuse to defend. they're clearly unconstitutional anti-gay marriage bans. there's one other thing i wanted to note about arizona and its law. it's currently not illegal in arizona to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation. right now people can be fired in arizona or denied services or thrown out of their apartments for being gay, lesbian, bi, or transgendered. so this law not only was completely unnecessary, but the vetoing of this law isn't going to protect lgbt people in arizona who are currently facing anti-queer discrimination. >> i mean, look, that's such an important point. you can cast this as in some ways a hopeful sign because as we're reporting the incredible united backlash to something bad. it's a long ways from full equality

of warfare for this country, the u.s. now has a new defense battle plan that involves shrinkinging down the military. >> the -- shrinking down the military. >> it would shrink down to the smallest since 1930's before world war ii? >> jon: what? i just love the army. i just love the army. [laughter] we can't shrink the army. it's a process only tested on our kids. [laughter] and then after that ourselves. [ laughter ] ising this this goss to be a -- is this going to be a trilogy? what are we cut something in. >> after iraq and afghanistan we're no longer sizing the military to conduct long stability operations. there's 525,000 active duty soldiers. we've decided to further reduce the active duty army strength to a range of 440,000 to 450 soldiers. >> jon: 450 that's not enough. i really don't -- 450,000. that's -- [laughter] that actually should be fine. [ laughter ] so we're deploying tough love to match our military size to our military needs. i think this is right especially since our military spending is bigger than the next 13 countries combined. as long as we keep the commitments w

shaking in their boots. after all the russian told the president to take our missile defense systems out of europe, and president said yes, sir, and took them out, put them on the back of our navy, and gave the navy no additional asset to do that. now he is cutting asset that navy has, i don't think that the president right now has the credibility necessary to back up many of his statements. lou: and do you have a view as to what likely putin will do in ukraine? >> lou, one thing that we're always afraid of, when you see the vacuums then you know, president putin may try t to -- exhibit some of his muscle, a react on world react, not u.s. reacted we're hoping he will be deliberate and not do, that let the ukrainian people work this out forever themselves, no matter how difficult that work out might be. lou: i was to turn to the issue of defense spending, and budget cuts, that are being insisted upon our military, and the pentagon. you are a champion of our military. you are more concerned than most on capitol hill. about national security, day in and day out. what is your judgment of the
defense council found that between 1999 and 2010, a lack of snowfall cost our ski industry a billion dollars. and up to 27,000 jobs. before the end of the century, the number of economically viable ski locations in new hampshire and maine will be cut in half. skiing in new york will be cut by three-quarters. and the report says there will be no ski area in connecticut or massachusetts. well, if you know your geography, you know if that's true of connecticut and massachusetts, there goes rhode island's yagu valley ski slope. the bicameral task force on climate change, which i started with representative henry waxman, asked the national basketball association, major league baseball, the national hockey league, the national football league and the united states olympic committee to tell us what climate change means for their sports. the national hockey league chemicadeputy commissioner wrot, "hockey's relationship with the environment is unique. our sport was born on frozen ponds, where to this day players of all ages and skill levels learn to skate. for this magnificent tradition to co
the protesters. now the question in washington, how do you respond to vladimir putin? our secretary of defense gave a warning to russia today like sort of cold war style. it is unclear whether putin is listening. a top russianing new agency says the ukrainian president is staying in a kremlin guesthouse and still considers himself the president and plans a news conference tomorrow. he scened from ukraine during protests. ukraine is smith between a pro-east and a pro-west. the future of the ukrainian people is hanging in the balance. and putin ising ignoring calls from the west to stand down. putin is pushing his tough-guy image these days, made famous in these shirtless pictures. he has ordered war games along russia's western border right where it meets ukraine and making sure the world sees him flexing his military muscles. releasing this ridow of fighter jets training. secretary of state john kerry says putin claims the drills have nothing to do with ukraine. secretary kerry says he is asking the russians to let ukrainian make their own doeses. >> i talked to the foreign minister and we tal
in crimea. we have now spoken to someone from the ministry of defense. they say let's not put too much weight on this. frankly, every time that the russian troops have encircled military bases and they have now around ten, they have given some kind of an ultimatum. he said this is just another one of those. frankly, these ultimatums have passed and nothing has really happened. so i think it is important not to put too much weight on this deadli deadline. it is not necessarily an official deadline. from what we have seen, they have been very calm. it has been a very low key kind of invasion. ben wedeman our own ben wedeman was just at one of the border post bases. he said that the soldiers there, one commander told him he got his orders to leave his base at the black sea fleet on saturday. he had come up there. the locals were giving him tea and letting him have a place to have showers. so it has all been very amicable. as i said, a pretty low-key invasion. the situation on the ground here is very, very calm. it seems to be the international community and the world markets and everyone
. -- we want to reiterate our concerns to abide by the provisions of the 1994 defense memorandum. we guarantee the sovereignty and integrity of ukraine. we note that the provision calls for the one. -- call for the signatories to consult when there are questions concerning the commitments within the document. this clause is even more relevant now, and indeed represents an opportunity to peacefully resolve the current crisis. we are encouraged by indications that government of ukraine is taking steps to ensure political inclusiveness in the governance of the country. we believe this is a prudent way of addressing one of the underlying causes of the disputes and an early return to peace and stability. the call by the secretary general for cool heads to prevail remains relevant under the circumstance. we urge all concerned to refrain from provocative action that will precipitate now and in the future and unnecessary human suffering. i thank you. >> i thank the representative of nigeria for the statement. i look forward to the representative of the republic of korea. >> thank you, madam
views as a criminal defense lawyer. a comprehensive revision of the federal criminal code should focus on five main points. reducing the number of federal crimes, ensuring that the revised code strikes a proper balance between federal and state law enforcement, clearly defining the appropriate levels of mens rea, establishing uniform rules of construction, and revising the overly harsh punishment system. i'll take those in turn. fir, reducing the number of federal offenses. the list of federal crimes has grown from handful in the crimes act of 1790, to thousands today. this has occurred in part because the country has become more complex and also occurs because everytime there's a national crisis the reaction is to enact new federal crimes. the result is a morass of overlapping statutes. the more than two dozen different -- chapter 47. seven different fraud statutes in chapter 63 and i count 19 different obstruction offenses in chapter 73 of title 18. this proliferation of federal offenses has too main practical consequences from my perspective. first of all the sheer number of crimes
is a quarter million dollars. cheryl: you are coming out in defense of bitcoin? why would you defend bitcoin when you lost this amount of dollars? >> this isn't a problem with the bitcoin technology or protocol. it is a problem with one individual company, mount gox -- mount gox in japan. was a shady company that was not very trustworthy. they had problems for years and ultimately i got burned because i had fun there. cheryl: they're looking into mount gox to see if there is attribution, but you have a full defense of bit:in general and you say when it comes to regulators, quote, they are focused on amplifying and in cities destruction. this happened in the u.s. the federal reserve, they would have your back, you would get your $300,000 back. at this point you have got nothing so why blame regulators who could have stopped this and could have saved you? for what happened to mount gox but you can't regulate await incompetence and failure. that is what people try to do in the u.s. financial system and we're left with these too big to fail companies that posed systemic risks to the entire syste
